mply Better From the Ground Up

Our Professional Panel was designed to minimize costly and time-consuming site preparation for both indoor and outdoor projects. We created a base structure that not only is capable of supporting enormously heavy loads, we also created a system that greatly improved both GMAX and HIC impact numbers. Simply put, we made better playing surfaces with a safer and more predictable base. Drainage is not a problem for UltraBaseSystems panels. They were designed to direct rainwater away from seeping above turf and affecting players by facilitating large water flow volumes both vertically and horizontally. Our patented interlocking tooth design allows perfect and smooth alignment from panel to panel, while our non-slip turf barbs mean your turf isn’t going anywhere. There is nothing else like these panels out there.

Engineered to Perform

Safe and Strong

“Built solid to play safe” isn’t just a catch phrase, it’s our mission! We’ve created a high-performance panel system that is structurally superior to its competitors. We proudly manufacture all of our panels from high impact, post-industrial recycled polymers, and then mold them into a patented geometric design that can not only withstand heavy loads and high impact, but can also provide a superior drainage system for any installation. The technology behind our panel system allows for reduced ground preparation, minimizing install times and cost of labor.

Drain Slots

Cell Detail

Our vertical flow rates of the Pro panel can range from 340 inches to 1500 inches per hour, and horizontal flow rates are at about 126 inches per hour. Each UBS panel can store 3.58 gallons underneath it! This is all due to our patented under side cell design that allows water to store then rapidly flow without clogging through super-sized multi-directional drain slots on the underside of the panel.

Cell Structure

Cell Detail

Because we designed our base panel system as a replacement for compacted rock, asphalt, or concrete, that mean that we had to make something that would be able to withstand the same load capacity. Well, we did. Due to engineering our panels with a 4.25’’ hexagonal cell structure, we’ve created a static load capacity for the weakest location of the panel equivalent to 374 psi (26.3 kgf/cm2). Load values when placed over a full descending cellular rib are 998 psi (70.17 kgf/cm2). Our panels can take loads like forklifts, emergency vehicles and utility trucks, among others.

Turf Grip

Spikes Detail

Our panels contain 3,000 turf barbs each. These patented barbs create highly coefficient friction which removes the turf movement issues you may face with other base systems like stone. When paired with a felt or foam backed turf, our barbs will create a stationary turf system that won’t move while it is properly installed on UltraBaseSystems panels. That means we’ve created a system that requires less infill for your turf.

Panel Locking System

Tooth Detail

We have patented the over-under locking tooth design that you’ll find on every one of our base panels. This technology creates the perfect alignment from panel to panel to promote a smooth surface for any installation. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a flat or contoured surface. We’ve achieved true ball roll and bounce with the planarity created by our system. It’s visually appealing and functional.

Tooth Detail

Tooth Detail

The interlocking tooth system not only ensures a smooth playing surface for athletic footing, but it also ensures that UBS panels stay locked together once a quadrant of 9 panels is assembled. This technology prevents our panels from shifting or disengaging due to weather or athletic movement from above.

Specification

Vertical Drainage:

Single panel flow rate 341 inches per hour (866 cm/hr).

Horizontal Drainage:

Single panel rain fall evacuation 96.4 inches per hr (245 cm/hr).

Storage Capacity:

Single panel fluid storage capacity = 3.58 gallons (13.55 L).

GMAX:

GMAX rating of 121 achieved with no turf layer. Values ranging from 85-120 depending upon turf systems and sub base.

HIC:

Compliant HIC values are achievable when the UBS Professional panels are manufactured from more resilient and shock absorbing polymeric blends.

Vertical Deformation:

The result for all of these tests performed met the requirements for a STC Stadium Field. The requirements for a STC Stadium field are the same as those specified in the FIFA 2-Star Standard.

Force Reduction:

The result for all of these tests performed met the requirements for a STC Stadium Field. The requirements for a STC Stadium field are the same as those specified in the FIFA 2-Star Standard.

Energy Restitution:

The UBS Pro panel is designed to be part of a system consisting of most combinations of 1.5 inch (3.8 cm) turf or longer. When combined with a properly filled turf system UBS Champion will pass the FIFA 2* requirements on shock absorption, energy restitution and vertical deformation.
